Because life is a series of edits

Avon Calling

In Seminary Tychicus on October 13, 2005 at 4:37 pm

Learner and I are sitting in the seminary’s newly remodeled student lounge, talking. By no intention of our own, we can’t help but overhear a loud conversation between a soon-to-graduate missionary-hopeful and the world’s most eager recruiter.

The over-the-top enthusiasm is exceeded only by the number of ministry cliches used. As a result, the missionary recruit is buying it all hook, line, and sinker, thanks to the annoying “God has a plan for your life,” paint-by-numbers tone and mentality of the recruiter.

“Ring, ring. Time to pick up the clue phone,” Learner says. I agree.
